Spending money is human nature, but it’s what we spend it on that is something that we need to take into consideration. I do find that students who have money spend it on the most useless things, like 10 new phone cases, Energy Drinks, or simply because “Hey why not”? Honestly, it’s important...

The perks of being single

The single life can be a happy time or a terribly, terribly sad one. It’s like being freed from the ball and chain. You are no longer subject to buying your significant other a certain thing that was shown on Twitter as “relationship goals,” and you don’t have to respond to their text five minutes...

Ah yes, Valentine’s Day. ‘Tis the day to spoil your significant other, and it is also the ideal day to curl up in a corner and question your life choices as you cough up hundreds of dollars in order to please the parasite known as your boyfriend or girlfriend. As if losing money wasn’t bad enough,...

In the first few months of the New year it’s not uncommon to see people focusing on their personal resolutions in hopes of changing for the better. I do see the importance of New years resolutions, but realistically speaking who ends up following through with those? Setting short term goals for yourself...

If Biddeford is known for one thing, it has always been its love for and dedication to athletics. As long as I can remember, BHS sporting events, particularly football and boys hockey, have brought in more die–hard fans than one would imagine. Sitting in the bleachers of the 2007, 2008, and 2010 Boys...

The education downward spiral

Cameron Petit, Editor in Chief

Filed under Editor Column - Cameron Petit, Opinion

Although I am a part of this very modern society, I find myself envying those that lived far before my years for reasons that would make a list longer than anyone could ever imagine. One thing I particularly wish was still the same is the education that my parents received when they were high school...

New Year, New You starts with kindness

Abbie Paquette, Co-Sports Editor
January 5, 2015
Filed under Opinion

As the ball drops, new wishes and resolutions are made in hopes of becoming a better “you.” However, in all honesty, about 75% of us high schoolers are far too lazy to follow through with these resolutions for 2015. Sure, we can buy a bunch of fruit or a gym membership and become healthy, but with...

As most Christmas seasons are, this happy holiday is the busiest of all. With people rushing and the days ticking away, finding the perfect gift for family, friends, and that special someone can be more stressful than anything, especially on a budget. As an amateur gift-giver myself, I know the confusion and frus...

It seems that as soon as we’re done stuffing our faces with sweet cranberry sauce, mouth-watering mashed potatoes, and succulent turkey, that Christmas is on our minds. We all look forward to wrapped gifts and spending time with our families. Yet, there's always a gift that we get a one point in our...

The confliction and contradiction that is senior year

Cameron Petit, Editor in Chief

Filed under Editor Column - Cameron Petit, Opinion

Senior year is one big pot of conflicting emotions. It’s the end of an era, a transition in about every possible aspect of one’s being, and the start of a new life all in a nine month span. We come into senior year excited about the only school year we would probably ever categorize as “fun”...
